GAINESVILLE, Fla., Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) is excited to announce a new clinical journal coming in January 2016: Today's Veterinary Technician. As an official journal of the NAVC, this peer-reviewed, state-of-the-art publication will present editorial content with a unique medical skills and continuing education (CE) focus for veterinary technicians.
Thomas M. Bohn, Chief Executive Officer of the NAVC, stated, "Our mission with Today's Veterinary Technician is to provide medical insights and techniques that help improve skill sets and professional development specific to the veterinary technician audience. Readers may earn CE through opportunities covering a variety of practical nursing and technical skills in areas such as emergency and critical care, dentistry and nutrition, presented through peer-reviewed quality articles and tutorials from experts in veterinary medicine. It is the perfect complement to Today's Veterinary Practice, our other official journal."
Today's Veterinary Technician will be produced by a seasoned publishing team with a leading veterinary technician at the helm: Lynne E. Johnson-Harris, LVT, RVT, Editor in Chief. Lynne is the practice manager, working alongside her husband, Jerry Harris, DVM at Hinckley Animal Hospital in Hinckley, OH and she is an NAVC Past-President. She was the first veterinary technician to be elected to the NAVC Board of Directors and served from 2003 to 2014. "We feel strongly that veterinary technicians should have as wide a range of CE and educational resources as veterinarians and this journal offers them just that. We know the importance of knowledge — both skill and career based— in supporting personal and professional growth. We're here to help this essential group grow to their fullest potential."
